Get up close and personal with one of the biggest problems facing American families today: don’t ask for accommodation.
The Trump administration has proposed a series of rules aimed at ending discrimination against LGBT people.
But Democrats are facing mounting resistance from business groups and their allies in the LGBT community.
The Republican president’s proposal would bar transgender Americans from using the restroom that matches their gender identity, which is known as gender identity disorder.
Democrats, on the other hand, argue that the president is targeting transgender people because of their gender.
It’s an issue that has drawn criticism from some in the transgender community and even from some Republicans.
In an op-ed published Tuesday by The Hill, the group’s executive director, Sarah Kendzior, argued that the rules would undermine the rights of transgender people, which include the right to use the bathroom and locker room that aligns with their gender identities.
She also argued that Trump’s proposed rules are discriminatory.
“It is not enough for transgender Americans to simply say ‘we don’t want to be discriminated against because of who we are,'” Kendzison wrote.
“Our families deserve to know that they will be treated fairly and that their privacy will not be compromised.”
Republicans are also trying to reverse Trump’s policies, which have seen the number of transgender individuals arrested in the U.S. nearly double in the last five years.
While it is true that the number is much higher than it was under the Obama administration, Kendzion said in the op-ED that the Trump administration’s anti-transgender policy is hurting transgender people in a way that could lead to more violence and discrimination against the transgender population.
“The fact is that the anti-discrimination law currently in place in the United States is not working,” Kendzione wrote.
She added that the administration has “ignored, ignored and abdicated its responsibility to protect transgender people.”
As of March of 2018, more than 14,000 people were in federal custody because of the anti of transphobia in the country, according to the Justice Department.
The numbers continue to rise, and Kendzions op-Ed suggests that the Republican administration has taken an important step toward ending discrimination and ensuring equality for transgender people.
Kendzius also noted that the GOP is moving to repeal the Obama-era Obama-Equal Pay Act, which prevents transgender people from receiving a percentage of their pay.
“We cannot allow the Trump Administration to further undermine the lives of the transgender American community,” she wrote.
As the LGBTQ rights movement has evolved, Kendzin has continued to champion the issue.
Kendzin also has argued that it’s important to note that there is no “one size fits all solution” to the discrimination faced by transgender Americans.
“In order for transgender rights to be achieved, it is important to understand that all Americans have the right and the responsibility to be treated with respect and dignity and that the most vulnerable Americans are most at risk,” she said.
